How high WAS that by the way?

Just out of curiosity today I spent quiet some little time with a bag of
little marshmellows and a box of toothpicks. I built a space frame. I
beleive the name is "octet-truss"....all tetra hedrons...

What I'm wondering high could it go? Using the hi tensile
strength materials (kevlar?) and the presurization technique discussed
earlier just how high could it go?
